In 2016, the Foreign Ministry awarded 131 contributions and 2 prizes. In 2015, the incentives comprised 172 contributions and 3 prizes.

The candidacies must be submitted by March 31 of every year to the Italian Cultural Institutes and to the Italian diplomatic and consular missions abroad according to the procedures established in the Call for candidates.
